Guest Blogger: Your Back-to-School Shopping Helps Others

The last of the fireworks had barely popped and sizzled before the first back-to-school shopping ads started airing on tv and radio. It felt like summer had barely gotten started and I was already being asked to turn my attention, and my money, toward shopping for new clothes and school supplies for my family. And […]


Guest Blogger: What a dish! Random DIY pieces become talk of the Tea

Here’s a super easy, really fun project for DIYers of all ages.   The result is a one-of-a-kind serving tray, created in just an hour and a half, that is sure to get many “Oohs!” and “Aahs!” What do you need?  For each serving tray, select three dishes of varying sizes going from bigger to smaller […]


Fashion Blogger Profile: WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

My love of secondhand clothing began back in high school. I worked at a resell store as a clothing buyer. I was 16 years old and it was my job to sift through bags of people’s last season’s fashions to price and sell in the store. I loved that secondhand clothing allowed everyone to recreate […]

Many of you might not know but Goodwill was one of the first national brands that gave us the chance to partner for a major collaboration.

Fashion Blogger Profile: Heart, Print, and Style

Secondhand shopping has always been a part of my life. From growing up in DC, begrudgingly walking to the Georgia Avenue Thrift Store for back-to-school shopping to (thanks to my frugal Dad) to presently when I visit a thrift store just because it’s a Monday. While I don’t enjoy heading out to a mall/center or standalone […]


Fashion Blogger Profile: MODAGE :: Where Modern Meets Vintage

My Personal Lifestyle Management and Style Concierge Service Firm MODAGE | Where Modern Meets Vintage (“MODAGE”) […]

Fashion Blogger Profile: Got It At Goodwill

Secondhand shopping is in my blood and I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. My grandma loved to find name brands for a fraction of their department store price and would announce the bargain price of her outfit to anyone who asked… and to some who didn’t. She passed her skills […]

Guest Blogger: Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks Served with a Side of Goodwill!

Tis the season for my two favorite things about summer: fresh produce and entertaining. There’s truly nothing better than gathering together family and friends to share a fresh meal composed of local summer bounty. Today, I am roping my other love – Goodwill shopping – into summertime entertaining. It seems like cook outs become a […]

The Bowie location has officially opened! Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending a private store launch of the newest Goodwill Retail Store in Bowie, MD. Finally, a Goodwill store in my neck of the woods in PG County! The brightly lit, massive store is filled with what we expect from a fully stocked […]
